Tony Villelli has lived in North Idaho since he was 14. His parents, Dick and Marie, moved Tony and four younger bothers out of the rat race of southern California in 1986 to Good Grief, Idaho. The move was a natural fit for five active boys who loved the outdoors. Tony started high school as a freshman at Bonners Ferry High, where he was involved in varsity athletics as a starter on the football team for four years and high school politics as the student body vice president in his junior and senior years.
Tony went on to college at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Wash., where in four years he earned his degree in Economics and Finance, while staying active by playing rugby at the university. Immediately upon graduation in 1994 Tony took and passed his real estate exam for licensure in the state of Washington, where he still holds a real estate license. Without delay, following the acquisition of his Washington license, Tony obtained his Idaho license, while working for his family’s real estate development and management company, Villelli Enterprises, Inc. Tony has been directly involved in the management and development of many very large commercial and residential properties in northern Idaho and eastern Washington, most notably Hidden Lakes Golf Resort in Sandpoint.
In 1999 Tony married wife Susan and moved to Hayden Lake. Tony and Susan now have three little girls, Marissa, Alysha and Vanessa.
Growing up the family’s business was always part of daily family life. It was only natural to become the first in my generation (the third generation of Villelli’s) to be licensed as a REALTOR®. With years of going to the office with my dad as a youngster and over a decade of licensed experience, I cannot imagine a job that I would be better suited for or that I would enjoy this much! Real estate is what I love because it truly is part of my family.
